Having problems with your Canon EOS Digital Rebel XS / 1000D IS Digital Camera ?

Cannot update firmware

\015 My sister's Canon Rebel XS recently fell victim to the "busy" bug and has since locked up and will not shoot. I am aware that Canon's most recent firmware for the XS is meant to solve this issue however, I have been unable to update the cameras firmware:\0121) The busy signal in the viewfinder also means the menu screen does not pop up, therefore I cannot access the menu in order to update the firmware via the camera itself.2) When tethered to a computer (tried both Windows Vista and Mac OS X) via USB, the camera isn't recognized-- nothing is being registered as even being attached to the computers USB port-- and therefore the EOS utility (I have it installed on both computers) can't find the camera in order for me to access it's menu and update the firmware that way.\302\2403) I have done a "hard reset" of the camera. Yes, I even removed, reinserted, then replaced just for safe measure, the "date/time" battery. The busy signal still remains, and I cannot access the menu.\302\240The camera is far past warranty and quite frankly, not worth the cost of sending it off to Canon to hit some sort of reset. I am wondering if there are any suggestions to get the camera recognized via USB so I can update the firmware via the EOS utility? Any suggestions or tips are greatly appreciated. Cheers.\015

Sony dsc-t100 Tried to update to firmware version 2. Camera tries to "Updating Dont turn off". Eventually goes to "Error 10". I can't press anything except round Select button which restarts the updating process again and eventually error message again. I can't find the original firmware anywhere on the web. Only version 2. I believe finding a firmware other than version 2 may solve this problem. Also tried resetting camera. It always goes to same process described above, once the battery is put
